Today, the episode starts brilliantly. Olli angrily bursts into Jo's flat...

...and gets into bed.

Wait, no, I was accidentally watching the scene in rewind. This episode starts terribly as Olli wakes up in bed alone, puts his clothes on, and angrily storms out of Jo's flat. This is because Olli was expecting things to be totally different after Jo's sleep-driven "confession" last night, but the only difference is that Jo isn't even providing breakfast anymore, and that was always an essential part of their Affäre. Olli tells Jo that if he leaves now, he's NEVER COMING BACK. And Jo says "bye, then".

Jo does briefly nearly chase after him, but he gets distracted by the sight of himself in the mirror. (You know how they say the more symmetrical a face, the more beautiful it is... Anyway.)

At LCL Bella has to listen to yet more whining. Olli, you could have at least gone home to change your clothes first - partly because they must stink a bit by now, mostly because they probably have rules about double-deniming at LCL.

Bella says "just get over him", and Olli says "but Jo is so brilliant and perfect and deep, and he's just been hurt so badly, that's why he won't let himself feel anything for me and treats me like crap 90% of the time, underneath it all he's my perfect man and I can't let him go, gosh, Bella, I think he's the one... #Jo Helmke, say it loud and there's music playing, say it soft and it's almost like praying, Jo Helmke, I'll never stop saying Jo Helmkeeeee#"

So Bella pretends she has a phonecall.

Snubbed, Olli goes off to see Charlie who provides a more willing ear for his troubles and West Side Story rewrites because she is more considerate, or because she's just more interested in gossip and/or musicals. I assumed Schneiders would be the sort of place where they don't let you wear jeans at all, let alone a whole outfit made of jeans, but I guess Olli is an exception, being the owner's nephew. She also gives him a free cake.

When Jo shows up, Charlie goes all protective mama bear auntie bear, and tells him to leave, but Olli makes everyone be civil and says Jo should stay and eat there, just so long as he stays entirely out of Olli's line of sight.

They have a little confrontation later. Jo says they should still be friends because they like each other, but Olli says he can't just forget about his feelings. Jo says it's fine, because he'll forget about Olli's feelings, and Olli says that is in no way what he wants, and Jo says you can't always get what you want, and Olli says he once met Mick Jagger on the cruise ship and he was much more emotionally open than Jo. Olli storms off again.

And in a moment of unexpected vulnerability and mispayment of the bill, Charlie realises that Jo might not be as heartless and unaffected and arseholey and arrogant and harsh and cruel and egocentric and unfeeling and distant as he might seem.

The next day there's some really boring stuff at LCL, the important thing is Olli kisses Sascha:

The rest of this week is mostly just Andi/Bella/Sascha stuff, with Olli appearing occasionally to fulfil the role of friend-to-listen-to-Andi's-delusions-about-how-he-and-Bella-are-defs-gonna-get-back-together. This unlikely, because Bella has told Andi 1000 times that she's not interested any more, and also because she's getting it on with Sascha now.

This is all top secret of course. Both of them are completely ashamed of the disgusting things they've been a party to, and the the dismay and betrayal that anyone who hears about this appalling act will feel. Plus neither of them wants Andi to find out in case he does something irrational like murder someone or throw all his Duplo in the river again. So when he nearly interrupts them a slight mishap occurs leaving Bella slightly injured. I'm not sure I can summarise it very well, so I'll leave it to this Youtube commenter:

I hope that's all clear enough.

Then Andi finds out about the sex, and decides this is an opportunity for a threeway.

The other two are less convinced.


Incidentally, in real life, Marc Barthel (Tim) and Sascha Pederiva (Sascha) have been doing a TV diving competition (like Splash, but with less Tom Daley), which you can watch here. Here's a pic as a preview:

I'm not a diving expert, but I think Tim might be slightly better...

XDDDDDD x100,000 between this and the Youtube comment you posted I'm fucking dying XDDDDD

The LCL storyline with Gina and Sascha/Bellandi was painful, you're super nice for subbing all that. XD

Btw I did briefly wonder if it would take you awhile to get caught up on your recaps, but that was before I realized that this past week was essentially the Ben Schöne Show XD (and that there're only two VL eps next week).

Oh and thank you so much for the Turmspringen link! <3 I was all set to watch it live via a Pro7 stream and then I had to leave the house abruptly to take care of some family biz, I was so annoyed. -_- Marc definitely seems to have better form than Sascha there... :D

Yes the family stuff is fine, thanks. :) <3 More of an annoyance than an actual crisis, which is why I was annoyed to have to get up and leave. XD (I'm helping more and more with my bio dad's business and in the process learning how unprofessionally/shoddily he's been managing things, so it's been a hot mess.)

I did wonder if you'd be subbing the upcoming Bella stuff since it's both Olli- and JoH-adjacent. :) It's really noticeable how much Olli/Olli-related content there's been lately on VL, particularly after all the departures. Updates are the woooooorst, I don't have Windows but I'm still regretting ~updating to Apple Mavericks on my computer.

Whoever Joshua Hernandez is I think VL should hire him to write out the remaining spoilers. I'd love to hear his take on Alexsgar XDDD I tried to look for evidence of "Sascha donkey" in the Turmspringen clips, but no banana luck. :( But maybe he had it tucked away nicely. "Sascha donkey" would explain why Sascha kinda waddles when he walks XD

Apparently doctors are not only bisexual, they're bi-eyeline XD
